Before I ask my question, I have to say this... This forum is GREAT! It has already helped me on the long road to getting my bike where it needs to be. The advice on the carb screws has helped out tremendously. Since the bike I bought has....not aftermarket, more like after-a-few-beers, exhaust, she seemed to not be running to full capacity, and the carb screw setting worked on throttle response and cured up (since it was turned out WAY too far) the jumpy throttle at cruising speeds. So THANK YOU ALL for having this forum.
That being said, on to my question. I knew my regulator was bad, and replacing it helped, and my stator is bad too (it's getting replaced next week). Can a bad stator cause the bike to not perform well at high rpm's? When I get down on my throttle, it seems like I am peddling a bike...it just doesn't get up and go like I think it should and it has more trouble getting past 5k rpm's to 6k. Any thoughts?
Now where did this piece come from???
